Great View, But Pricey.

Great view overlooking the Nubble lighthouse and rocky Atlantic coast. My fiancée and I stopped here for lunch and a beer. We both had the lobster rolls and they were excellent. Our waitress was very good, friendly, and attentive. This place is a bit pricey but worth the visit.

We ate upstairs in this restaurant and had a direct view of the lighthouse, and the ocean. My daughter had a 1 pound hardshell lobster for a reasonable price ($15.00) although there were no fries or salad to go with it. My lobster roll was tasty and well put together. I suppose the food seemed expensive because of the touristy... More

A great place to eat, the food is excellent. Try to get a window seat, the ocean views are great. If you sit upstairs, the views are even better. It's worth the visit.

The food was good, but not worth the price or service. There were 6 in our group and that included 2 kids (5 and 18 months). The service was so slow and the waitress forgot multiple items. We were staying in Hampton and found a much better seafood restaurant that we will return to. Check out Al's Seafood if you... More

We stopped at Fox's recently to get lunch on a beautiful day in July. We ate inside, upstairs, rather than outside with the crowds. Our servers were all college-aged but wonderfully pleasant and kind, very talkative. I had the clam chowder and my husband had the lobster bisque, both thick and rich. We shared fried lobster and onion rings and... More

Enjoyed a mid-week dining experience here! Arrived on bicycles & a staff member was quite helpful in assisting with our bikes and that was just the beginning. Early arrival (5:30) on this particular evening afforded us a window seat & the view was spectacular. The service was courteous & quick and the food was very good. Our server was local... More

Stopped here for dinner on our recent trip. Got a table upstairs and we were amazed at the noise. Now, I know people who complain about noisy restaurants, and I am pretty tolerant. But my wife and I were shocked at the noise. The upstairs is small, crowded, and has very bad acoustics, so the volume spirals as people try... More

We stopped for a light lunch while visiting the Nubble Lighthouse. The bisque was delicious. So was the blueberry pie and the blueberry lemonade. It was a bit pricey...probably due to the location. But the food was excellent. And what a great view!

Thank you for excellent service. Waitress was Anna. Blueberry pie was best I've ever had, out of this world. Fish was fresh and delicious. You have a first class restaurant. Very accommodating to us, with mom in wheelchair. Memorable dinner. Thank you!!!! A++++
